God damn, there's no reason that game should have been that close. Our kick and punt coverage teams need A LOT of work. I'm glad I didn't make it to the game cuz I would have had to f!ght some UCF fans.

Quarterback Matt Grothe clearly wasn't the only person in USF's football program motivated by George O'Leary's seemingly innocent comment last month about his confidence that his team could average 3 yards a carry behind an experienced offensive line.

On Tuesday, Grothe made reference to something the Central Florida coach said to the Orlando Sentinel on August 5: "As long as we've got an offensive line, I'm gonna get three yards a carry. You can book it." The comment had no context with USF and just spoke to O'Leary's confidence despite losing star running back Kevin Smith.

On Monday night, reflecting on a 31-24 overtime win Saturday against the Knights, USF coach Jim Leavitt made a reference to O'Leary's comments.

"I was really proud of our defense, because they held them to 2.7 yards per carry. I remember earlier, O'Leary said ... what were the words he used?" Leavitt asked.

Reminded of the comments, Leavitt repeated the hook: "You can book it. It was interesting."

Told that O'Leary was speaking generally when he made the comments and not talking specifically about USF, Leavitt said: "Everybody but South Florida, you think? Generally speaking, he didn't get 3 yards a carry."

Can't wait for Friday night. I'm expecting a shootout man. Hopefully we'll be able to get some pressure on Reesing and force some mistakes.

I think our D can shut them down.... 2 freshmen tackles they are gonna have to double and triple Selvie and they have been very efficient with the run game... I think we play a lot of nickel and dime this week...

I have no doubts we'll be playing a lot of nickel and dime. The big question at that point is how well the other 3 guys on the line can get pressure on Reesing when Selvie is drawing all the attention. I'm anxious to see how McClain follows up a solid performance against UCF, and Genus with some more game action. If those two can get going, it could be a long day for the Kansas O-line

I so glad Alverado not kicking FGs anymore.... Tyler still looks like a.ss, hes gonna get us beat if we dont do something soon.... Nate came up clutch and TJ being injured last year is the reason we dropped 3 str8 games because he is our best receiver and IMO NFL caliber receiver....

Dude, this NC State game is gonna be a slugfest:

SHOTS FIRED:

Go ahead and fill up that bulletin board ...

It's only Monday, and we already have some "Wow, did he say that?" quotes to pass along, a full five days before USF travels to Raleigh to face N.C. State, fresh off its overtime upset of No. 15 East Carolina.

It comes from N.C. State coach Tom O'Brien, who talked with coaches at other colleges in the offseason about the spread offense and how to stop it. O'Brien told local media last Thursday that USF wasn't one of the schools he consulted.

"Did you watch them against Oregon?" O'Brien asked, referencing the Ducks' 56-21 trouncing of the Bulls in the Sun Bowl in El Paso. "Go look at that game. That was the spread that they were defending. I'm not saying anything about South Florida's defense, but if they're the gurus, we'd better go somewhere else."
I'm thinking that should motivate USF's defense -- and its defensive coaches -- just a little this week ...
RETURN FIRE:

Burnham fires back at N.C. State

Burnham USF's defense took a shot from N.C. State coach Tom O'Brien last week when he told reporters he saw no reason to consult with the Bulls about stopping the spread offense, as Ohio State and Colorado coaches did in the offseason after USF beat West Virginia for the second year in a row.

"Did you watch them against Oregon?" O'Brien asked, referencing the Ducks' 56-21 trouncing of the Bulls in the Sun Bowl in El Paso. "Go look at that game. That was the spread that they were defending. I'm not saying anything about South Florida's defense, but if they're the gurus, we'd better go somewhere else."

USF defensive coordinator Wally Burnham, asked about the quote Tuesday afternoon, laughed for a moment and said he agreed with O'Brien's statement, though he questioned the need for it.

"Here's the way I feel about it: He's right. We're not gurus," Burnham said. "On the other hand, we try to handle things professionally and not say anything ... with class, not say anything about anyone else's coaching staff. He can say what he wants to. The other thing, I forget what bowl game they were in. That's all I've got to say."

N.C. State, of course, lost its last two games last season to finish 5-7.
Wally's gonna have that D fired up boy. Harrison Beck is in for a beating

Mompremier: Neck injury was 'terrifying'

USF linebacker Brouce Mompremier, sidelined since a serious neck injury 10 days ago against Florida International, said Monday that he could not feel his arms or legs for several minutes on the field as trainers attended to him after a violent collision.

"It was the scariest thing I could ever imagine," Mompremier said. "It was terrifying. I tried to get up and I couldn't feel anything. Being like that for probably like five minutes, everything raced through my mind. I'm thinking 'How would I live my life like this?' The only thing I could move was my head and my neck."

Mompremier, a senior from Miami, regained feeling and movement in his arms and legs before he was transported to an ambulance on the field, which took him to a helicopter, which took him to Jackson Memorial Hospital. He said feeling pain from the injury and a pins-and-needles sensation in his arms and legs was a welcome change from the uncertainty of feeling nothing.

"When it started to come back, I started feeling the pain, but at that time, I was glad for the pain," Mompremier said.

At the hospital, he stayed on his back in a neck brace overnight, as doctors wouldn't let him attempt to stand or walk until the next morning. With USF's team returning to Tampa, the only teammate he saw in the hospital was fellow linebacker Sabbath Joseph, who is also from Miami and stayed in his hometown.

Mompremier has shown encouraging progress since the injury, and while he won't play in Thursday's game against Pittsburgh, he hopes to return to practice next week, with an eye on returning to the playing field for USF's Oct. 18 home game against Syracuse.

"(A team doctor) told me I'm no more at risk than any other guy on the field," he said. "That was a pretty good thing for me to hear, because it gives me confidence to go back out there. The whole thing I'm thinking about is how am I going to tackle? Am I going to change my approach? Is my head going to be way behind my body? I probably forget how to tackle. I have to get back to the basics, so hopefully the game hasn't gotten far away from me."

Mompremier returned to practice as a spectator last Tuesday and has been around the team since; he was selected by USF coach Jim Leavitt to be one of four game captains against N.C. State, a reflection of his leadership on an experienced defense.

"I'm really missing being out there," Mompremier said. "I'm not missing the running after practice, but missing the whole concept of football right now. It's hard, but I'm grateful to be out there with those guys."

Mompremier ran with his teammates at Sunday's practice but said he stopped after getting a headache. The Bulls will likely have a limited practice schedule next week with no game to prepare for, but Mompremier expects to return to drills in time to play in the next game.

"I'm pretty optimistic I'm going to be back (for) Syracuse," he said.


Good to hear he's doing fine now. I was worried as fu*k when it happened
